Was in Lidl this morning and bought a pot of tete a tete daffodils, only 50p. But I've got it home and don't know what to do with them. Do I have to repot them coz the bulbs are sticking out of the soil? How much watering do they need and when do I transfer the bulbs to a garden pot for future years? TIA

Do not re pot them. They have all the nutrients they need in the bulbs. If you re pot them the roots will take up nutrients from the compost to the detriment of the blooms.Water sparingly, no need for plant food. Pop the pot in a pretty container.
When they've finished flowering and the leaves have wilted down, turn them out and dry the bulbs in a shed or somewhere frost free but cool ( egg boxes are good for this, and ideal for storing them in)
Pop into the garden, about 3" deep in the early autumn.
